A thorough understanding of how herbicides work assists agronomists and growers to maximise herbicide performance. When confronted with a range of weed problems and environmental conditions, the challenge is to optimise the results in the field.
Knowing what weeds will be controlled from a herbicide application is the easy bit – it’s on the label.
More challenging questions include
Why do herbicides perform or fail in some situations?
Critical comments on the label. Why do they exist and how were they developed?
How do adjuvants and water conditioning agents work? What should be used, when and why?
How does resistance affect different herbicides? What strategies can be used as resistance emerges?
How do residual herbicides work and what influences their breakdown?
ICAN is delivering a series of GRDC supported workshops for agronomists which go into the science underpinning how herbicides work. Participants will leave with a better understanding of the key factors dictating herbicide performance and what can be done in the paddock to ensure weed control is maximised.
Please note: As ICAN requires interstate travel from Queensland to deliver these workshops, they will only proceed if state boarders entry/exit is permitted at the time of the workshop. Should we need to postpone any workshop(s), registrants will be able to hold their spot for a rescheduled workshop OR obtain a refund.
Date/Time: 30th September 2020 to 16th October 2020
